Kingston HyperX Predator Beast DDR3 2133 MHz - Should I overclock beyound the 2400 XMP profile?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've recently build a small 6800k based PC for light gaming. I've only just started to do overclocking as such I'm still very ignorant of a lot of things and its terminology. My goal is to optimize it as much as possible within reasons and I know the APU benefits from high RAM speed and while 2400 MHz seems sufficient for my requirements I would like to overclock beyond that as long as I wont be needing extra cooling. If nothing else for the purpose of learning something.
Does anyone have any experience with these? Especially in combination with the 6800k, though as this is all new to me, any help would appreciated.

RAM is tricky.

You will probably have to up both DRAM voltage and CPU-NB voltage to get better RAM speeds or timings since the memory controller is on CPU

I guess that is a central point for these as the IGP also relies on the CPU-NB for overclocking. I was going to be satisfied with the XMP profile until I saw this review, though he doesn't clock it above 2500 MHz and in any case I don't actually know which RAM he is using.
I did find a review of the Kingston HyperX Predator Beast where they clocked it to 2626 MHz. Though I how this transfers to my situation I guess is more tricky.
I definitely prefer to have chart telling me how the different settings corresponds to each other, as with my current experience level I am a bit reluctant to do any experimentation myself.

Just relax timings and work from there up> its tricky but not that hard

Fair enough, I'll give it a try later today.

I'll be back! ... with some info.
